    The Penderwick sisters go to an estate called Arundel. Arundel's owner, Mrs. Tifton, does not like the sisters, but her son becomes friends with them. They work together to solve some mysteries. I liked this book, because it was interesting.

    This book was great! It's about a girl who gets her magical power or "savvy" on her thirteenth birthday, just as her dad is injured. I enjoyed this book, and I'll probabaly read it again another time.

    Magnus Chase is the son of a Norse God. The Viking Gods are preparing for war. Magnus lives alone in the streets of Boston, avoiding Police men and Truant officers, and then he meets an uncle he barley knows. This was a really good book, and I would recommend it to anyone who reads the Percy Jackson series.

    Aru Shah is a twelve year old girl who has to try really hard to be normal at school. She has to stay at the Museum of Ancient Art Indian and Culture. This book was interesting, and It is good if you live fantasy and mythology books.

    This book is about two sisters named Sophie and Claire. They are going into a different world, and there they find fighting. I wouldn't recommend this, because it wasn't that interesting.

    I liked this book because it has mostly everything you ever need to know about sharks. I would recommend it for people who want to read about sharks.

    Clay is a six year old dragon. There has been a dragon war his whole life, and he is part of a movement called the Talons of Peace. I sort of liked this book, but it was really violent.

    jso6 liked a comment in Wings of Fire Book One: The Dragonet Prophecy.
    I think this book is very well done. It is the story of a dragonet (baby dragon, in this case six years old) named Clay. He has spent his entire life living with a peace movement called the Talons of Peace. It turns out Clay and his friends are part of a prophecy that will end the Great War, which is raging across Pyrrhia, the dragon's continent. However, the book does have quite a bit of violence and gore; eggs are smashed, poisonous tail barbs are stabbed through skulls and other body parts, battlefields are drenched in blood and covered in rotting corpses, dragons are murdered, claws, teeth, and fire are used, necks are snapped on multiple occasions, the Talons of Peace members who are supposed to be taking care of the dragonets plot to kill one of them in her sleep, acidlike venom melts faces in detail, a dragon bites the head off of a "Scavenger" (human), dragons fight to the death in brutal arena battles, a dragon who has deadly burning scales burns dragons alive, and a bloodthirsty, not exactly mentally stable queen orders multiple executions and thoroughly enjoys the fighting in her arena. Languagewise, there isn't much; "heck" is uttered once. Later in the series, dragons have their own version of swear words (i.e, camel farts) but in human terms, it really doesn't mean anything other than "camel farts". Insults are thrown around ("RainWings are lazy and stupid," "That's a stupid idea", etc.), which leads us to the next thing: stereotypes. Dragons stereotype on another based on their tribe. RainWings are stupid, lazy, and incompetent. The NightWings are all great and powerful big-headed magical beings. However, each tribe is ruled by a queen, not a king. A good portion of the strong chracters are female. As for other... stuff.... a "breeding night" is mentioned , which leads to MudWings not knowing their fathers. There is drinking at a party (a queen orders a servant to find the most sober guards she has). However, the book is really good; the plot is absorbing and the characters are all very distinct. I'd definitely recommend it.

    Rook and Drift are two kids that are stranded on Talhaven with a lot of other kids. Rook and Drift lost their memories, and so they named themselves, as did the other kids. The people on Talhaven don't trust magic, and so they call the kids with magic like Rook and Drift "Exiles." I really liked this book, and it was really good.
